Thanks for the info Dearsman,

Could you be more specific about parts though please?

Why does the IX have ridges on either side - is it because it has the aluminium roof like the VIII MRs?

What is changed between the 8 260 engine and the 8 GSR engine?

What gives the MR better engine cooling?

Cheers.

Thanks all, information added. Looks like this could be a useful resource when it's finished.

As well as new information, if you spot anything that could be worded better, let me know, and I'll change it.

the 9s are an evolution of the 8 MR so have aluminum roof bilstein suspension etc. If you look at the 9 brochure on the mitsi uk website it explains the differences. The 8 brochure explains differences between 8 and 8MR

Good effort though as there are loads of misunderstandings about car specs

Cheers

John

John
if you say the 9's came as standard with bilsteins then why is it some 9's did not have the bilstein's ? but had standard suspension, and also had 2 pot gravel brakes. see this thread.

It's the 9FQ's only had these not import 9's by the looks of things
